My Typical Day

Now that Madison has started First Grade, a typical day looks like this:
Up at 6:00 AM (OK -alarm goes off at 6:00 AM, I don't roll myself out of bed until 6:30 AM).
Take a shower at 6:30 AM.
Get Madison up at 7:00 AM, make breakfast for Madison, & do a chore or two...
Make sure Madison is getting ready by 7:20 AM, all the while getting me ready, & believe me...that is a chore!!
Be ready to get out to the bus stop by 7:45 AM, bus arrives between 7:50 & 7:55 AM.
Read bible & do another chore or two at 8:00 AM.
Leave for work by 8:15 AM.
Arrive at work by 8:30 AM, by way of Sonic for a medium Coke!!
Lunch typically around 12:00 or 12:30 PM.
Stop work around 5:00 PM.
Play on SSS until 5:30 PM...or so...
Home by 6:00 PM.
Start dinner at 6:05 PM, and eat - hopefully done by 7:00 PM.
Review Madison's homework with her at 7:00 PM, or let her watch some TV.
When she is done with homework, I can put in a load of laundry or other household chore.
Start Madison's bath around 7:45 PM, done by 8:15 PM.
Get her in bed at 8:30 PM & read her a story.
Done saying goodnight by 9:00 PM.

Favorite Scrappy Stuff

I guess it {all} is my favorite!! But, if I had to narrow it down, I would say:
Patterned Paper, Brads, Buttons, Ribbon, and Rubber Stamps,
and anything that I've never used before...I mean really, it's so fun to try new stuff, and even if I totally end up not liking it, it's still fun to try. Then, occasionally I find something that I didn't think I would like, but I really do.

Right now, I got a new pack of LePlume II pens, so I am busy taking rubber stamps, coloring parts of the the image, or coloring the image different colors, & then stamping it. It's fun!!

The Altar & The Door

Rock on Casting Crowns!! You really ROCK on this album!! It is classic Casting Crowns - with in-your-face lyrics and complex rock sound. "The Word Is Alive" just makes me cry & rejoice all at the same time. Thank you for not disappointing!
